Rejoice, the Lord Is King!

Vigorously

1. Rejoice, the Lord is King!

Your Lord and King adore!

Mortals, give thanks and sing

And triumph evermore.

[Chorus]

Lift up your heart! Lift up your voice!

Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

Lift up your heart! Lift up your voice!

Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

2. The Lord, the Savior, reigns,

The God of truth and love.

When he had purged our stains,

He took his seat above.

[Chorus]

Lift up your heart! Lift up your voice!

Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

Lift up your heart! Lift up your voice!

Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

3. His kingdom cannot fail;

He rules o’er earth and heav’n.

The keys of death and hell

To Christ the Lord are giv’n.

[Chorus]

Lift up your heart! Lift up your voice!

Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

Lift up your heart! Lift up your voice!

Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!
